There is no doubt that Jesus was Jewish. But I think Christians tend to believe he still is. I think that misunderstands the resurrection. The Bible says:
27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus.(Gal. 3:27 & 28)
This passage is often interpreted to mean that Jew nor Greek matters as a Christian, but it also says,...
Every Christian should be aware that the same state high court that first imposed gay marriage a decade ago heard arguments yesterday on a case that could result in shutting down churches across Massachusetts, by taxing their land and buildings--a move that could be followed by other states, just as in the case of gay marriage:
I want to be clean, I want to be without sin.. I like the feeling I get right after prayer, It's like a clean pure feeling, But it does not last, Sooner or later temptation happens..
My sins and desires offend me, And even though I try to resist, it's not so simple, The flesh is wicked and it desires what it does. Is there a way to make temptation go away and never come back. I dislike my temptations, I want them to stop completely, forever..There is no need to go into detail. And lest...

What does the Catholic church do with those who ignore church doctrine? Are they considered by the church to be apostate?
There are wheat and tares. For the most part the tares are seldom disturbed. Pope John Paul II had this reputation for being such a hard-nosed reactionary, but what he did was to strengthen the good and pretty much leave the rest alone. Once in a rare while he came down hard on those who were doing damage to the Church. Likewise pope Benedict XVI had...
According to Scripture, God wants all men to be saved. We are also told in the opening chapter of Romans that God, in some way, shape, or form, has revealed Himself to all men. However, in the OT, we read about how God parted seas, rained manna from Heaven, executed fearful judgment on nations and individuals, and generally made His presence quite evident.
If we are perfectly honest, God does not seem so 'obvious' now, to the point that some may ask - where is God? I understand...
"Ultimately, many Christians end up hated - not because of Jesus - but because we are too often jerks and completely unwilling to look at our own behavior."
I think i know some key ideas. Its because it undermines the creation story and that people will become irreligious?
Well wouldnt that be an issue about the idea of the earth is flat if the bible is literal on that part i mean?
What i mean is that science explains our physicial world. The main point i am making is that Creation Story had two interpretations in medieval ages. Allegory" basically a deeper meaning than it is. Or "Literally" like just like it is written.
So basically allegory...
Sometimes I find myself talking to deceased loves ones. It is a one-way conversation. A few times I might ask for help if that is possible. I don't know if deceased loved ones exist or if they might be too busy with problems of their own or there might be a process. Maybe the deceased person is limited to interceding with God on behalf of the living person. It is all open to speculation.
Anyway, here are my questions:
(1) How is my interaction with deceased loved ones different from...
